During the December quarter 2013, the rise in total assets was due to increases in residential mortgage loans (up $1.8b, 1.8%), other loans (up $1.0b, 7.5%) and cash and deposits (up $0.5b, 12.4%).
Residential and non-residential mortgage assets, which accounted for 82.3% of total assets, were $105.8b as at 31 December 2013, an increase of $1.8b (1.7%) during the quarter.
Liabilities of Securitisers
As at 31 December 2013, total liabilities of Australian securitisers were $128.6b, up $4.0b (3.2%) on 30 September 2013. The rise in total liabilities was due to increases in long term asset backed securities issued in Australia (up $3.3b, 3.6%) and loans and placements (up $1.1b, 8.6%). These were partially offset by a decrease in short-term asset backed securities issued in Australia (down $0.5b, 9.6%).
